Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) on Thursday backed off his firm promise to withdraw combat forces from Iraq immediately and instead said he could “refine” his plan after his trip to Baghdad later this month.DKK
Earlier, a top Obama adviser had said that the senator is not “wedded” to a specific timeline.
Obama told reporters in Fargo, N.D., that he is “going to do a thorough assessment."
Politico -- Obama to 'refine' Iraq plan
Update -- The Obama camp denies this report and claims there has been no change in his policy, still set to withdraw within 16 months.
But that is not what his campaign said earlier in the day. Patterico has the details of all 3 or 4 or 5 or... policy statements on this issue. Is Obama's strategy to confuse the hell out of everyone then they can't attack anything? He's still gonna get the votes, he figures.
